She is legitimately a nice person, but also legitimately a terrible and catastrophic teacher. Ask to change classes immediately or self-study as fast as you can. The only good thing about her is that she doesn't give too much homework. Class time is always spent doing worksheets or activities even though she hasn't taught anything about it yet. For the record, she's taught 4 lessons so far, two of which were not understandable because she had not taught anything previous to that.

The only good thing about Mrs. Lamb is her kindness and leniency, although that's not a good thing to get used to. She doesn't teach at all, so self studying is must for this class. She is extremely judgmental and many have complained of her racial prejudice against Asians. All in all, if you get her, good luck!

After 30 seconds of actual teaching, she'll start getting into a story about the news or diabetes or some other random stuff. If you memorize the words from the flashcards you do and conjugations of words, then you'll pass with flying colors. Then you can just daydream or sleep or something for the rest of the class period.

I'd like to believe that she has a wonderful personality, but Lamb really needs to learn how to teach. She is nice, usually happy, and easy to talk to but she's also a racist hypocrite. It seems to me that she can only teach about 3 things; what sees on the news that interests her, diabetes, and herself. I find that she is very much like Millie from Fahrenheit 451 in the aspect that she simply follows what the media is saying. She criticizes what the news hates, praises what the news loves.

She never says when the tests are, then tells you on the day of a test, always goes off topic about how wonderful spain is and how you should visit europe, but then says those of you who go to europe for vactions are spoiled. she starts about a million movies, but only finishes about five of them. she's a horrible teacher. and she talks about diabetes too much.

All she talks about is diabetes. If you yawn in class be prepared to have your parents get a call that you should be tested for diabetes. Easy class because it is all extra credit. Tests straight from the book and same every time. Doesn't tell you when tests are and never finishes stories, but not strict at all. Good luck!

She's a good person. Extremely generous and thoughtful of others buuuuuuuuut doesn't teach well and ultimately leaves it to you to teach yourself from the book. Movies are both dubbed/subtitle in spanish -______- plus we continue the movie every other day instead of consecutively. Quizzes/tests are tough w/o studying but the multiple choice ones that are a bundle of that chapter's quizzes/tests are easy. Oral presentations must be memorized! No cards unless you want points taken off

I got by Spanish 3 with a B-. She's aware that there's cheaters. The best thing to do is do the flashcards early and colored for extra credit. They're worth over 50 points. If she asks for more extra credit, do it. It helps keep your grade up, especially since I got really low test scores. Don't do the workbook work until she posts the answers on the projector, it's not real homework, but it gets turned in at the end of semester.She gets off topic, tells lots of stories, and speaks english a lot

I believe she's a good teaher. She cares about her students. She doesn't put up with nonsense but she has a good sense of humor. If you care to learn and are not lazy you will do well in her class.
